Everything is going digital these days, even… confetti? Yes, that’s right, "Digital Confetti" was used as a one-night interactive installation for the Metropolitan Home Magazine’s "Design 100″ party.

The party was to celebrate their yearly issue that pays tribute to those individuals and objects which have made progress in cutting edge design. How suiting that confetti should go digital for this particular event!

Here’s what the Rockwell Group had to say about the event:
Rockwell Group LAB transformed the mid-century modern interior of the Four Seasons Pool Room with an interactive sound and light installation. David Rockwell’s continuing interest in spectacle and temporary installations, combined with digital media, encourage exploration of enhanced and memorable experiences.

How does the installation work? Well, firstly it is based off of traditional party favors like confetti, noisemakers, balloons and fireworks all combined into a twelve-foot diameter weather balloon that was hung above the pool at the Four Seasons restaurant.

Projectors around the balloon display 3D confetti-like images and every now and then a firework explosion of light carries on every now and then along with selected text.
